Not posted in a while, but recently I stumbled across this posting by Allen Millyard (a true Kawasaki fan and famous bike builder in the UK) who is currrently making a home made Kawasaki 6 cylinder, based on a Z900. Thought some of the wise old sages on the forum here might like it

Just makes me realise how mechanically inept and limited I am.

He spends a lot of time "creating" Maybe he's single? Love his work. I would have thought he would have created a 1800 cc V8 rather than an inline 6.

What a guy! I can’t wait to hear it running. The sound of an in-line six, plus the whistling ( is it the primary drive ? ). that makes those Kawasaki 900’s so readily identifiable.
I have a feeling that when Kawboy gets his workshop set up, he’s going to give Millyard some competition in the field of amazing engineering accomplishments.

He did make a V8 Z1a many years ago: think it now resides in the Barber Motorsports Museum in Birmingham Alabama. - would love to go there one day !
